How to fix cannot execute binary file error

Here is the solution to fix the binary file error or the error showing that cannot execute the binary file

We just have to apply the following command and by identifying the internal configuration of our machine. The command is uname -a

In addition, the next command to be followed for verifying the architecture of the file execution is file filename

This process provides us with a deep knowledge that what architecture we need. Let us just say if we are doing our work on 32-bit Linux but the file needs a 64-bit structure. We simply need to download a 64-bit real-time machine to run the desired file.

Binary files are the files that have a compilation of machine code. They are also known as executable files as they can be executed on the computer and Linux is a Unix-like operating system for computers, supercomputers, mobiles, and other embedded devices developed by the community.

When you cannot execute binary file Linux, generally the message of the error appears when Linux is not able to detect or identify the file, and most of the time the reason is running the executable on the incorrect architecture. For instance, if someone tries to run x86 executables on an ARM CPU, the mentioned pop-up message appears.

If you cannot execute the binary file exec format error then let us confirm that the Error Exec format has its own meaning of the binary execution that is made for a different architecture than the current environment. This generally comes up when the system is booted on a 32-bit system but the environment of 64-bit is trying to get loaded.
